Getting error message  "Word(XP or onwards) could not be found on the machine"

I am suddenly unable to drag or open Word documents in Designer ES4. I get the error message  'Word(XP or onwards) could not be found on the machine'. Sounds like some obscure setting is denying access to word to me but I can't seem to locate it. Any suggestions?

  • Word (version XP or onwards) could not be found on the machine

    I am currently test driving LiveCycle Designer ES3. When I try to convert a Word document I get the error message "Word (version XP or onwards) could not be found on the machine".
    - I have tried the registry hack posted by ES2 users on another forum. It did not work.
    - I have tried converting both *.doc and *.docx; got the same error on both formats.
    Is there a solution for ES3? We are considering buying the software but if we can't make it work with Word that would be a deal breaker.
    My system:
    - Windows Pro 64bit
    - Office Pro 2010 64bit
    - Creative Cloud (CS6 and Acrobat XI)
    - LiveCycle Designer ES3 (trial)
    Thanks in advance for any help fixing that bug!

    I'm a little bit lazy and just copy/paste something from Microsoft ;-)

  • Word could not be found on the machine

    I am trying to test the option to convert a word form into a pdf form. Using Adobe LiveCycle Designer that came with Acrobat Pro 8 on an XP Machine using Office 2007.
    When trying to open the .doc file, I get an error message
    Word (version XP or onwards) could not be found on the machine.
    Word 2007 is definitely installed and I have done all the latest Adobe updates using the Help Menu update options.

    I recently bought some new albums and can't play them on my ipod

    I just encountered the same problem on my 2 month old MBPro.  I found a work around by changing USB ports.  As for the actual cause or the reason why that worked, I dont know.  The USB port I was using works fine with my phone or other USB devices.

  • I'm trying to use import com.adobe.crypto.* on Windows version of my App but get error 1172:Definition com.adobe.crypto could not be found

    The Mac version of my Air app works fine, so does the iPad version, but the PC version has been a bit of a nightmare.
    I keep getting the error "1172:Definition com.adobe.crypto could not be found", when I publish it.
    Basically the 'com' folder is in the same directory as the app I am publishing and within that is 'adobe' and within that is 'crypto' within that is a series of .as files.
    I've added C:\Users\Gary\Documents\My_Applications\My_App_folder\com\adobe\crypto to source path list (I have no idea if that's right).
    But that just gives me a different error 5001: The name of package com.adobe.crypto does not reflect the location of this file. Please change the package definitions name inside the file.......
    I didn't have to include this source in the Mac version... but someone seemed to suggest it on a forum.
    I'm basically stabbing in the dark at the mount, something I seem to be doing a lot of these days. :-(
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Many Thanks
    Gary

    I've figured it out
    Turns out I needed to add a source path (in the Actionscript 3 settings click on the Source File Tab) that exactly matches the directory the app and com folder is inside of. I wrongly assumed that Adobe Air could figure out where it was for itself, but no.... it needs to be told where to look for the com folder even though it's staring it right in its face. (Don't set the path to the 'com' folder itself, but to the enclosing folder that the .fla and the com is in).
    The Mac version doesn't seem to need that, it just finds the com folder if it's inside the same folder.
    Now I've got another massive error:-
    When I test the app, it works fine sending to Air for Desktop, however when I publish with embedded runtime for Windows.... It comes up with this error.
    Any ideas ?

  • Start up error message - Entry point xml TextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxm12.dll.  Happened after Itunes up date I think. Have tried uninstalling and installing nothing works.  Help please

    At start up I get the error message - The procedure entry point xml TextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxm12.dll.  I have uninstalled it and reinstalled but it does not fix the problem.  Happened after Itunes update I think.

    It's a simple fix and doesn't involve reinstalling anything.
    With Windows Explorer, navigate to your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support folder.
    Copy the libxml2.dll that you should find there, navigate to the nearby Mobile Device Support folder, and Paste it in there also.
    Restart the programme all should be well
    In case that your OS is (64 bit)
    1. Open windows explorer, go to location C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
    2. Copy file "libxml2.dll"
    3. Open new windows explorer, to to location C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support
    4. Paste file "libxml2.dll" to the location.
    5. Restart the programme, it should not display that message, it should be clear.
    Good Luck

    I powered my iPad off and when I turned it back on it is telling me to reconfigure it. So I select English then United States then I selected my WiFi then message comes up that says your iPad could not be activated because the activation server cannot be reached. Try connecting your iPad to iTunes to activate it, or try again in a couple of minutes. Have tried several times and it is still not working. Nothing will show on screen on icons nothing.

    Try to Update your iPad to iOS 6.1.4 when connected to iTunes via USB too.. You do not need to touch anything on your iPad to update your iPad either..

  • Cannot save webpage (.html file) because get error sayting that a " .js" file could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Any ideas where my problem is? Thx.

    Every time I attempt to save a webpage (.html format) I get a message indicating that some .js-type file was not saved because the source file could not be read.
    I did some "cleanup" of add-ons because there were so many. Is it possible I deactivated one that I need to read .js files, or could/would it be something else?
    Thanks.

    Please help.

  • Need Registry Help / Clarification on "Word (version XP or onwards) could not be found"

    In regards to "Word (version XP or onwards) could not be found on this machine" and the registry hack I have a few questions.
    Current Set up: Windows 7, 32-bit.
    LiveCycle ES2, All of the patches have been applied to LiveCycle ES2
    MS Word 2010, winword.exe found in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\
    I have read: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3983628
    And I get that the only way to fix this is by doing this:
    Problem is the Registry. LiveCycle searches only the following folders.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\InstallRoot
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\InstallRoot
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\InstallRoot
    But word 2010 is under
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\InstallRoot
    So, solution is (for win x32):
    Create following Path in Registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\InstallRoot
    create new "string value" "Path" with value "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\"
    Quotes are not necessary.
    The question I have is about what sections in the Registry need to have the Path added.
    Is it only:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\InstallRoot
    Or do these areas need it as well?
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word
    And last:
    Does the adding the Path apply to only the 12.0 or does this need to be added to the 14.0 folders too?
    I've never played with the Registry, and after applying the hack to the
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\InstallRoot folder, I still cannot import Word files.
    So I'm guessing it is just my ignorance on how the Registry works, or I misunderstood something in the instructions.
    Thanks for the help! 

    Gave up on the whole scenario, and got the free LiveCycle ES4 upgrade when I updated to Adobe Pro XI.
    Import functions from Word now work.

    Hello,
    the reason could be the use of order_save badi, mostly there is a wrong + faulty implementation which causes this error. Please check first if any own coding part is involved, when creating documents / tickets.
